Kitchen Under $50,000-1

An Inviting, Updated Kitchen

Initial Budget: $45,000 to $50,000.

 

Final Cost: $48,972. To stay within the budget range, the designer used the existing dishwasher and microwave and suggested refinishing rather than replacing the existing floor.

 

Client's Goals:

  • Create a more inviting kitchen that would interact well with the rest of the home

  • Replace appliances and cabinets

  • Select cabinetry with increased efficiency and storage capabilities

  • Make the kitchen more aesthetically pleasing

  • Include a desk area

  • Improve lighting

  • Incorporate wine storage

 

Designer's Solutions:

  • Created a more open flow by removing part of an existing wall that separated the kitchen and dining room.

  • Moved the cooking appliances, allowing for more countertop and storage space by the open bar area.

  • Specified a refrigerator model that would not dominate the room.

  • Added a combination of general lighting (ceiling cans), task lighting (undercabinet lighting), and decorative lighting (three pendants over the sink).

  • Incorporated a wine cooler.
